El Toro is a cosy cafe, restaurant and bar in Southsea, fit for coffee, brunch, cocktails and gourmet food from the grill. If you're in for coffee or brunch it's safe to expect plenty of choice, from Brazilian-style street food to eggs done all sorts of ways and even Mexican ribs. If you're getting your grill on, why not go surfing & turfing with a good bit of steak alongside some king prawns?
